Interactions between Solvent Molecules and Networks in Biogels —Viscoelasticity, Strength—
It has long been known that the rheological properties of gels are affected by the interactions between solvent molecules and networks. The nature and properties of these interactions have been studied extensively during the last 40 years, and in many types of gel systems the frameworks of gel can now be predicted reasonably. The objective of this report was to investigate the relationship between dynamic viscoelastic properties and gelation.
